Abstract

Four euryarchaeal genomes have been completely sequenced and are publicly available: Methanococcus jannaschii, Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum, Pyrococcus horikoshii and Archaeoglobus fulgidus. Four more genome sequences, two crenarchaeal and two pyrococci, will soon be released. In addition, seven more archaeal genome sequencing projects are under way, including two halophiles, two Thermoplasma, and a methanogen. These projects cover all branches of the archaeal domain and will lead to new insights into archaeal metabolism, DNA processing, and evolutionary relationships with the Bacteria and Eukarya.
